We decided we weren't going to make any sort of snide comments about how little Blizzard needs the money, this time. Nope, we're just going to hit you with the facts: World of Warcraft
recently hit 11 million subscribers
, up from 10 million in January
. The nine months that separate the two milestones is the biggest in WoW
's history. In fact, the past few million-sub jumps have happened at reliable six-month intervals.
If you were a Blizzard staffer who plugged all this data into a chart, you would be imaginary
, because who has time to make charts when the new "Thrones Made of Bald Eagle Heads" catalog just arrived?
...Crap, we were so close.
